Happy Monday Everyone! I've missed you, I feel like I've been away from my little laptop for far too long. It's funny how attached to it I've become, despite the fact that I still have a lot to learn about technology. I hope you all had a great weekend as usual. Saturday I went to Los Angeles, in particular Hollywood. I was born in L.A., only live about two hours away, but had never fully experienced the magic of it. Millions of people travel to Hollywood from different parts of the world each year, and yet I had never even set foot on the walk of fame. A travesty of sorts I guess. The boyfriend and I had a great time just being tourists and enjoying the scenery. Such great people watching! I didn't really take too many pictures, but I did manage to do a quick outfit before we left:

Top: Ella Moss (Anthropologie)
White cotton eyelet shorts: Banana Republic outlet
Heeled sandals (actually very comfortable): TJmaxx
Necklaces: Lisa Taubes and HoH
Rings: Ann Taylor and a boutique
Bag: Michael Kors (TJmaxx)

Nails: Essie Boat house

We saw some great signatures at the Chinese Theatre. We were mainly interested in the old Hollywood actors ;)

Marilyn Monroe's hands. Bigger than mine!

What a legend!

Oh, and I wanted to post this from last weekend's shopping trip. I completely forgot! I will have a review of the Phyto hair masque on Wednesday.

~Phyto restructuring masque, NARS lipgloss in Albatross, MAC lipglass in Flurry of Fun. I saw the MAC gloss on my friend Katie and just had to find one for myself~

  12. oh love that gold wire ring!!! where did you get it?!

  13. Josie: Punchy, that describes it perfectly! I got it at Duanne Reade in NYC, so it holds a special place in my heart ;) I haven't seen it anywhere else.

    Andee: Thanks sweetie, it's from a boutique by my work. The maker is based in La Jolla, but I have no clue what the company is called. I should have asked! I can always go back and ask them. I remember they had one in silver too, and I might have to get another one so if I do I will be sure to get some information from the salespeople.
